MTV ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF "THE SEVEN," A DAILY POP CULTURE- DRIVEN LIVE NEWS SHOW THAT COUNTS DOWNS THE DAY'S SEVEN MUST-KNOW STORIES

HIP HOP SENSATION DRAKE AND CAST OF THE SOCIAL NETWORK (JESSE EISENBERG, ANDREW GARFIELD & JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE) TO SERVE AS FIRST LIVE IN-STUDIO GUEST INTERVIEWS

September 23, 2010 - MTV today announced the launch of The Seven, a daily, half-hour, live studio based show that counts down the seven must-know pop culture-driven stories of the day, along with live interviews and performances. Hosted by former Chicago radio personality Kevin Manno and former "Mets Weekly" host Julie Alexandria, the show will be presented live in front of a studio audience in New York's entertainment hub, Times Square. The show will debut on September 27th at 5pm ET/PT with hip hop sensation, Drake, and the cast of the film, "The Social Network" (Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield & Justin Timberlake), slated as the show's first live in-studio guests.

"It's become nearly impossible for our audience to keep track of all the issues that matter to them," said Steve Tseckares, Senior Vice President of Special Programming and Production, MTV. "The Seven will cut through the clutter and serve as a daily curator of the seven must-know items of the day."

Each episode of "The Seven" will give MTV viewers an edge up on the seven things that will most impact their world including celebrity, music, movies, and television news, as well as a myriad of other topics including sex, dating and fashion. Fast-paced with a fun vibe, the program will originate from Times Square, but its content will span the globe.

The show will debut on September 27 and will air daily at 5:00pm ET/ PT. Fresh off his performance at the 2010 Video Music Awards, Drake, as well as the cast of "The Social Network" (Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield & Justin Timberlake) opening October 1, will serve as the show's first live in-studio guests.

"MTV has played a pivotal part in my career from the beginning and I look forward to being a part of "The Seven" from the start," said Drake.

The Seven is hosted by Kevin Manno and Julie Alexandria. Kevin hails from Chicago, where his passion for music landed him a gig hosting a nightly radio show for top-rated station Q101. Julie is a pop culture junkie and an avid sports fan that New Yorkers may recognize as the host of "Mets Weekly." Steve Tseckares oversees the show, with Jennie Sager serving as Executive Producer.
